New Red Hook Landscape Taking Shape

Ikea One

The new Ikea in Red Hook was topped off several weeks ago and the building is, well, sitting there on Beard Street, awaiting its blue and yellow exterior. The way Ikea does its buildings, it will probably be finished quickly. The view below shows what the area looks like now that a large part of the Revere Sugar site has been cleared by Joe Sitt and Thor Equities. It is actually possible if you squint, or use a telephoto lens, to see the main gate of Greenwood Cemetery beyond the cleared Revere land.

Yes, I hear someone is coming with the ultimate set of Allen keys to finish off the construction. If they have all the proper parts, the store should be finished in an hour or so.
